Finally, I'm getting around to writing my review in preparation for sending this book on to vivdripper. I'm hoping, zzfriend, that you won't mind a detailed, sometimes critical, review (I believe that one of the reasons for this ring was to get some feedback, right? and I *am* an editor, so I'm going to deliver ;-) ). For those who follow in the ring, you might want to wait until after you've read the book yourself so my comments don't influence your appreciation of the book.

Sweet fun story. Silly in a good way. Good for most ages.... though it needs abridging for a toddler.

Un libro sencillo sin muchas pretensiones y para jóvenes de todas las edades. Se trata de un libre que se puede leer en cualquier momento, desconectando de la realidad entre sus páginas y disfrutando de su historia.
No querrás dejar de leerlo hasta que lo hayas terminado.
Totalmente recomendable como libro intermedio antes de iniciar alguna colección de libros más pesada.

Published in 2002, this is a neat little fairytale for children about a team of ferrets that operate a sea rescue service. The ferrets train hard, maintain their small rescue vessels and when needed, they sail into a stormy night to save ships and animals stranded at the sea.

Story and the style of writing are simple but neat. Ideas mentioned in the book: when you set a goal for yourself and work hard, you can achieve it; do job that makes you happy, with others who feel the same; risking own lif

Theresa picked this book up for me as it was about Ferrets.
It was a fun read and I even read a bit of it to our ferret Saphira. The book has a lot of good values to it including about courage as the ferrets in this book are putting their lives on the line to save other animals trapped at sea (not just ferrets). If I needed a book to read to a child, this would be a good choice.
Uno de esos libros donde la imaginación toma alas y viaja en la historia que nos narra el autor.
Un libro de héroes silenciosos, valientes sin interés de reconocimiento ni lujo.

Sin cansancio, donde ayudar a otros está por encima de uno mismo..
Excelso como todo lo de Richard

I love Bach's simplistic writing style. It's whimsical and flows beautifully. Metaphors abound in his writing and the first entry in The Ferret Chronicles is no exception. Quick read and I think I'll move forward and see what the rest of the series is about.

Richard Bach is one of my favorite authors, and he has written in numerous genres over the years. This is a wonderful book, but not along the lines of things I generally read. I think it would be a great book for young people or younger kids.

Compellingly written, this is a quick and easy read. Also suitable for sharing with younger audiences. I listened to it in audio format, read by the author.

What can I say- it was on sale and good for a family trip- not bad, but not in my re-read pile- I've never been a fan of talking animals
